Dr. Toman repaired a torn rotator cuff August 25, 2011. Since he repaired my wife’s rotator cuff the year before, I knew what to expect. Within a few hours, I came home and took the pain medication before experiencing any pain. This kept the real pain away. Wearing the arm sling 24/7,and not being able to get comfortable in bed the first week were my biggest problems. But that soon passed and I went for therapy and did my exercises at home. Like my wife, I recovered very well and now I am able to use my arm and shoulder more & more without much discomfort and expect a full recovery within the year from the surgery. We are fortunate to have Dr. Toman in Charlotte County and we both highly recommend him to anyone in need of orthopedic care. He is highly skilled and trained to operate in the least invasive manner; thus, one has a quicker recovery, and less chance of infections or complications. Thank you, Dr. Toman and staff, for taking excellent care of us.
